Web Accessibility Content Guidelines Version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0, Level AA)
My current focus is to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, Level AA compliance, set forth by the W3C. I also do my best to interface with third-party websites and apps that currently meet or are working toward meeting these guidelines. I’ll admit it’s not an easy task, but the benefits of meeting this goal far outweigh the difficulties.
Following W3C and WebAIM, I hope to continue learning while putting effort into staying ahead of upcoming changes to the standards and guidelines.
While I continue to curate and maintain this website’s development, I’ll continue to follow Principles of Accessible Design provided by WebAIM. Headquartered at Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities, WebAIM has provided solutions and expertise since 1999. Efforts include:
- Designing with readable text but also preserving your ability to adjust the font size
- Ensuring proper use of ARIA attributes for content when needed
- Making the site keyboard accessible
- Providing adequate color and contrast ratios for text readability
- Compatibility with popular screen readers, OS screen magnifiers, and speech recognition software and packages
